Maybe Mitt Romney should have tried a 'knee defender'(Read article summary)
Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney won't press charges against a fellow passenger who took a swing at him Monday night.
Romney asked the passenger in front of him to to raise his seat back before take-off. The request infuriated the passenger, who took a swing at the former Republican presidential candidate.

I'm a lover, not a fighter
Makes sense for Romney. Even if the passenger was completely in the wrong (and that's what it appears), Romney would stand to gain little by pressing the issue.
He's smart to drop it. He knows the media would give far more attention to this case than would ever pay attention to his book (unless Sarah Palin co-wrote it).
So, he's letting it go.
To recline or not to recline?
While we totally get why an airline passenger shouldn't have reclined during take-off (after all, FAA regulations prohibit it), it also brings up a bigger question: should passengers recline at all?
Just like politics, you'll get two very different points of view. And it gets heated.
